Our favourite vineyard - had to visit on our way back to Cape Town for a tasting and to stock up on bottles to take home. Really friendly staff, very knowledgeable about their wines and a touch of humour too!! The smell of baking bread as we were leaving makes me think it would be worth visiting for a bite... More

I had a very quick stop on the way through from a long afternoon of business appointments, while on the way back to the airport. I stopped with a colleague for a short break and to try some of the wines at De Grendel. We ended up sharing a bottle while watching the sunset, what a great way to end... More

The place and atmosphere is so beautiful. You really should go there at the sunset, it´s really unforgetable. Food is great and tasty. You can also taste some wines and buy them with you.

A short drive from Cape Town, De Grendel Wine Estate is perfectly situated to offer beautiful views of Table Mountain, the sea and gentle countryside. We began our lunch with wine tasting on the patio and then moved into the restaurant where we once again were able to appreciate the marvelous scenery. The menu is relatively small, with each dish...

SO PRETENTIOUS!! R155 for their scallop starter. And you get 2 tiny scallops. With micro bean puree, micro EVERYTHING!!! Two transparent slices of radish. One radish would have been sufficient for the entire lunch service for the entire restaurant. Will NOT repeat the experience!! A child's portion prepared by interior decorators!
